What’s a fantastic example of capitalistic forces at work? Big corporations might come to mind. They absolutely have their strengths. They can be dazzling at efficiencies and squeezing pennies.

But, the small business owner puts his/her personal reputation and entire livelihood on the line every day he or she goes to work. Since a capitalistic system favors the business person who offers a buyer a great value for his/her dollar, my money says it’s the small business that will pay extra attention to getting me a really good product at a fair price. Besides, numerous studies have shown that in general, locally owned small businesses retain and return more money to the local economy, pay higher wages and donate more money to local charities than larger, chain businesses.
